Virginia's Traudt returning to home state to join Creighton
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Isaac Traudt, one of the top national recruits and the highest-rated high school player in Nebraska last year, will transfer from Virginia to Creighton.
Bluejays coach Greg McDermott announced Friday that Traudt would return to his home state after sitting out this season as a redshirt. Traudt will have four years of eligibility.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged better than 23 points and eight rebounds per game during his junior and senior years at Grand Island High School.
Traudt was ranked as the No. 51 recruit in the 2022 class by ESPN.com and the No. 64 recruit in 247Sports composite rankings.
“We are excited that Isaac is coming home to play at Creighton,” McDermott said. “I’ve always been impressed with his work ethic and passion for the game of basketball. His versatility is a perfect fit in our system."
Traudt will join a Bluejays team that was 24-13 and reached the Elite Eight for the deepest NCAA Tournament run in program history.
